F1 salutes ‘iconic’ Ferrari and team’s 1,000th race at Tuscan Grand Prix

The Scuderia are being honoured at the Mugello circuit owned by the team, where F1 has never raced before, in the first grand prix meeting of the season to allow spectators. Ferrari will reach 1,000 grands prix having competed in the sport since F1’s inaugural season in 1950. “It’s an honour being here today,” said the Ferrari team principal, Mattia Binotto. Both cars this weekend will race in the deep burgundy colour sported by the first Ferrari built in 1947, the 125S. “Ferrari have contributed such a huge amount to the sport,” he said. There has always been this mystique about Ferrari and everything they have achieved. Perhaps appropriately given the Ferrari celebration this is the first race this season to have paying spectators.
